Take the full day train ride to Voss. Absolutely fantastic. Take a camera. The train actually stops at the Kjosfossen water fall. It is breath taking. You can get off the train for pictures and feel the mist from the water from the fall.

Plan ahead and enjoy your trip. Viking and the ship's crew will do everything to make it the best. The full day train ride in Flam is beyond awesome. Make your reservations so there is room for you on them. They fill pretty quick.
